No Scottish MSM have reported the story

It’s been some time since I’ve talked-up Scotland as a place, by no means perfect, but one which is drifting away from the brutal form of society which the Conservatives and Unionists seem to prefer.

See this from Contact: For families with disabled children on 10th August:

From September 2020, new rules in Scotland only mean that young people will continue to receive Disability Living Allowance (DLA) until they turn 18. Currently DLA claimants are invited to claim Personal Independence Payment (PIP) shortly after they turn 16. This is part of a wider change to benefits in Scotland. Over the next few years, Social Security Scotland will take on responsibility for an increasing number of new Scottish benefits. This includes a new benefit called the Child Disability Payment, which will replace DLA in Scotland, and a new benefit called Disability Assistance for adults will replace PIP.
